Well organized trip. Our agent with this Italy travel company was great. She went the extra mile to assure we felt comfortable with every aspect of the trip. Her reassurance and help made our trip a success. She spent a great deal of time helping us organize our trip. We were great full for the private transfers and private tours. The group tours were very congested. The private tours allowed us to ask many questions and to receive more individual and extra information.
We are an older couple and had not traveled internationally in a while. Therefore we appreciated the private transfers and the knowledge that the tour guides provided. We especially liked and remembered the beauty and charm of the smaller cities such as Sorrento, Postiano, Greve, San Gimignano and all of the Tuscany countryside. We also found Cinque Terre to be a lovely change of pace with its rustic individuality. Our favorite larger cities were Florence (so much to see and do with lovely outskirts closeby), and Milan with a more sophisticated feel and look. Unfortunately all the larger cities were rather crowded with both auto and tourist traffic.
We would make the trip shorter. We knew we were biting off a big chunk being on the go for 3.5 weeks. We will stick to a 2 week journey in the future so we don't wear ourselves out. We will give ourselves at least one day in each area to relax or explore things not part of those things we have on the agenda to investigate. Everything takes so long to visit there is so little free time to rest, relax and investigate things we find along the way that were unexpected points of interest. Planning our own trip is a nice way to travel though it is far more expensive than a group tour and a lot more work to organize. Not certain which situation is best. Traveling is a lot of work with age.
